So, brave knights, if you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for [it] awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth.

No, I am not talking about The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog in 'The Holy Grail'. I'm talking about The Maddie of the Gibson Household. Alright, alright, I admit the teeth are not that big. But the two teeth we discovered in Maddie's mouth Saturday are very sharp!

Next is the letter from August, as promised. (I love this letter).

To me, Thanksgiving mean my Nana comes over and then Mema comes. When they get to my house we play with toys, eat and then eat more. We eat macaroni and cheeseburgers. I am thankful for fries and cheesburgers. I am also thankful for Nana and Poka.

Thanksgiving 2008

I also have some great new photos of the kids. Look for them on Flickr!
Paige as Santa, August as Mrs Claus, and Maddie as Santa's helper.
Plus more! School photos of Aaron, Paige, and August.

We had a lot of freezing rain this morning. Lots of cars off the road. Anne and I waited 'till 8:15 for the bus to pick up the kids. We made it to work fine.

I learned it it smart not to fly with instruments older than 18 years old. If you are interested why, ask me in private.

The basement is mostly done now. I meant to take photos this morning to post, but was busy with other things. Anne and I are quite pleased with how it turned out.

We did a lot of Christmas decorating Sunday. We have the inside finished and hopefully, I will get the lights done outside tonight.

Warning:Funny stuff!

(1) I found this old 3GPP video (1.42M) of Aaron when he was a white belt in TaeKwanDo. Not the mean fighting machine he is now in Karate. :) link

(2) Anne often lets the August and Paige "do her hair". This is often a very painful thing for Anne physically given the girls pull and bind her hair. I actually sneaked in a photo of this for the first time. Here it is. :)
Edited: Sorry photo removed, but I am going to put it up on my Flickr :P

Oddly today, I had 3 people ask me if I went hunting this year. Actually, one person asked on my facebook wall in Nov, but I did not notice 'till today. Sadly, I have not been deer hunting since '93 and I doubt I will ever hunt on Illinois public land. Maybe 09 will be different :)

The database system I have been programming took an interesting twist this week. Not anything ISU related, just home programming. I gave it the ability to spit out commercial and inventory bar codes in the reports. It made a nice learning experience concerning both types of systems.

We have had quite a bit of snow lately. Monday was the first time I went off the road since I was a teenager. luckily it was not a big deal. Given I have a Jeep Commander, I just pulled back on to the road :)

I think I'm going to post a couple of letters from August and Paige. The letter from Paige is the first letter she has ever written, and I was honored to receive it :) Just a simple letter about her loosing her tooth. I'll scan the letter. It is cute and funny. The second letter is from August concerning what she is thankful for. She of course did not write the letter itself, but dictated the letter to her teacher.

Half American Bulldog, quarter Lab, quarter Collie....
Only weighs a few pounds....
But it sure can put away a lot of Turkey when it falls to the ground. :P

By the way, I forgot to mention, we have Sundays' Santa photos up on Anne's Flikr site.

I just placed 24 family Christmas photos of the family on Anne's Flickr site. They could have been better, but there are a couple of good ones in there. Part of the problem was that Maddie refused to take a nap that morning or before the photos. Additionally, Paige lost her first tooth the day before. Well, OK, that might be a cute factor. Also, to add character to the photos, at lunch before the photos, Maddie whacked Paige in the face with a wooden spoon leaving a red knot on Paige's face (cheek).
